Steve Blais, PMP
Presenting Panelist: Barbara Fuller, PMP on the topic "The Other PM: The real-life story of integrating Process Management with Project Management. Doing More with Less”
Lessons Learned – Process Management
Warmup question: Have you ever seen a process being too light or too heavy and how can you tell the difference?
Barbara surveyed people outside the team to get their perceptions, then worked to correct processes in order to make a better impression
Helped PMs to see that their cookie cutter approach was too rigid and heavy of processes – example: weekly meetings turned into standup meetings and each meeting needed a goal, agenda and time to complete
They made better estimations so that their “stakeholders” could send more projects their way.
She started a PMO without any funds by networking the PMs
